Beyonce's daughter Blue Ivy Carter makes a cameo appearance in the music video for her mom's new track "Spirit".

Beyonce debuted the video, which shows her in a variety of colorful gowns while performing in an African landscape, on ABC's The Lion King special with Robin Roberts on Tuesday night. Just seconds into the video, seven-year-old BIC strolls across the desert in a pink dress that compliments her mother's dress.

The camera then pans to a close-up of Blue, with the child staring into the camera as the wind blows through the curly red-haired wig that matches her mom's lacefront wig.

Elsewhere in the video are gorgeous shots of Beyonce standing in front of a waterfall, laying in a pool of water and performing a flowing dance routine with her group of dancers are interspersed with images of CGI (animation) animals apparently taken from the upcoming The Lion King live-action remake, in which Beyonce voices the character of lioness Nala.

"Spirit" is the first track off Bey's upcoming album The Lion King: The Gift. Blue also makes an appearance on the song "Brown Skin Girl". Another track features a collaboration between Beyonce and her husband, aging rap mogul JAY-Z, 50, while other collabos on the album include rappers Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino, hip-hop producer Pharrell Williams, and singer-songwriter Jessie Reyez.
 

  • Question Everything

    Beautiful. Absolutely beautuful.

  • iWasteTime

    That black little mermaid imagery. So here for it.
    I know people will gravitate to the known artist on the album but the amount of African Artists that make an appearance is so dope!
    Can't wait to hear it.

  • Nina Ross

    ??????????????

  • Coffee1st

    Can't say I'm that interested in the song. However, Blue is a cutie.

  • https://plus.google.com/112554936495871947070 Don’t touch my laptop!

    The song is Ehh but it's cool for the the whole Lion King movement. The imagery in the video is beautiful though.

  • Gloria

    Please tell me that is not a wig on that child’s head.....

  • https://nylapoprush.com/twitch twitch.tv/NylaPop

    Blue looked so cute.

    You can tell a white person choreographed the dance. Not a single authentic African dance in sight. Looks like the mayo interpretation of what cultural dance looks like.

    Vocals hurt my ears - especially that whispery "high whistling"

    That's all I got. Can we get a new post?

  • CardiB’sAbs

    The red wigs have me confused.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    LOL

  • MsSapphire9800

    Is Beyonce trying to sound like the person who did the demo????

    https://media.giphy.com/media/DfTZWmFpLx3os/giphy.gif

  • interestingconcept1

    Are there any African artists on the album? My goodness that first CU of Bey's hair- is it glued to her edges??. All of her music videos look and sound the same.Yawn.

  • MsSapphire9800

    She always have extension...but the wig is just too much.

  • http://www.kanzahsays.com ThatNigerianGirl

    Yh. Lots of them

  • Jessy

    Absolutely beautiful ?

  • Lucy

    I am not a Beyonce stan but let me tell you ....I LOVED this video!. The cinematography , the dancers, the scenery was awesome.

  • Desi

    So she stands for African culture, but puts a whole glued lacefront on a seven year old!?!? I'm confused.

  • KcoolMuziq

    The waterfall was filmed in the Grand Canyon.

  • onelove

    yes it was

  • onelove

    Blu looks like her dad!

  • KcoolMuziq
  • Carrington

    I couldn't make it through. It sounds like all the rest of Beyoncé's borin' songs to me. I only clicked to see little Gray Sapphire and I was so bored that I turned my head and started working and forgot the song was on. Beyoncé is at her best, in my opinion, when she's making straight up R&B, club bangers, or those "anthems" she does.

    I have always hated her, "I'm trying to win an Oscar" songs...
    Put ya bees on here, Hive. I don't give a damn. This is Sandra Mae's site, not mine. LOL

  • iWasteTime

    The wig is apart of the aesthetic all the women (Lionesses) in that scene had the red hair (Lion's mane) also gives us a glimpse at a brown little mermaid with the hair and the lavender frock. What is the correlation between standing for Africa and a lace front on her or her child?

  • iWasteTime

    Yes. Lots and lots of them

  • Gloria

    Beyoncé stands for a paycheck, lol. She was never this vocal or blatant about black culture until recent years, when she saw there was a growing wave and push to be “woke” and “pro black.”

  • iWasteTime

    the aesthetic all the women (Lionesses) in that scene had the red hair (Lion's mane) also gives us a glimpse at a brown little mermaid with the hair and the lavender frock.

  • Carrington

    Gat damn it, I done re-clicked on the video because I didn't watch it the first time and just realized that I've missed it AGAIN.

  • Desi

    True, true.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Female lions don’t have manes though

  • Desi

    She has her OWN THICK, NATURAL, BEAUTIFUL HAIR. It ain't Halloween. And she's seven, not a woman.That's the correlation.

  • Guest

    Reminds me of Solange's videos. I watched the video with the sound off.

  • Seldomseen

    Gray Sapphire.....dead

  • blackelephantintheroom

    Simply BEAUTIFUL!

  • interestingconcept1

    Lawd am I finally going to purchase a Beyonce Album??

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    I loved it. I loved the beautiful colors up against all that glorious melanin surrounded by all the beautiful backgrounds and I adored BIC cameo!!

  • interestingconcept1

    I was just going to post this. I thought the red represents the Tamboa plant..typical Beyonce to put a red wig on thinking she is the Male and Beyonce fans dont know the difference.

  • Kanyade

    Ivory or Ivy?

  • Marlika

    Blue looks soooooo beautiful.

    This song sucks though?????Beyonce doesn’t have the voice for this song.?

  • Angela Marsh

    Beyonce- is truly in a class by herself. I'm not a part of the beehive. But I can certainly take my hat off to this woman, who has been in the game over 20 years, keeping it classy, making mad money and looking beautiful while doing it. I salute my sister. Anyone that hate on this woman is simply envious or jealous! Period!!!

  • KcoolMuziq
  • Kanyade

    Desert Dancer Formation. Lady of the Cove. Pink Dust. Tree of life. Earth, Wind, Water, and Fire.

  • Kanyade

    Ha! Okay. I wondered for a minute---is her name really Ivory?

  • Trucie bedford

    She sings it nicely, but The song is rather bland. It doesnt really add anything special to the soundtrack or the film.

  • https://nylapoprush.com/twitch twitch.tv/NylaPop

    Are you being funny cause Jay Z is ugly as hell. Blue didn't look like either one of them in this video imo, and she was super adorable.

  • cpatterson_22

    So we turning the Lion King into the Beyonce movie?

  • Applebum

    I had to do a quick prayer before I pressed play. Lol.

    Is this the theme song for this classic movie? It’s not going to be as memorable as the others (circle of life, Can you feel the love tonight, etc)

    Every scenes looks like I’ve seen them elsewhere either by her or other people. Someone will be coming out accusing her with receipts soon. Lol. I love colors but this video is blah. She does the same ish every time, sitting still, rolling on the floor, lol.

    Whatever Beyonce.

  • Let them eat cake

    Stunning visuals...i like when she dresses colorful like that. The hate for this woman is so sad. And we have to stop our sick obsession with hair. We're our own worst enemy!

  • Logan Roberts

    I love the relationship Blue and Bey seem to have with one another.

  • Let them eat cake

    Now that part i didnt agree with

  • Applebum

    Do you actually create these MySpace generator fonts? How old are you? ????? Team Blue Ivy? How? She’s a kid. Lol.

  • Kanyade
  • iWasteTime

    Her being 7 , not a woman and in a red wig is the correlation to her mother Standing for Africa?

  • iWasteTime
  • SaltineCrackers

    Maybe the song sounds better in the theater...I give the song 1 potpourri rose for effort.

  • JazzyBossyJen

    She sounds like a congested walrus on this track..?

  • Alextra Ballard

    I wanted tew see Blue Ivy

  • Ni Ni

    Must her tiddays and azz be out all the time? The video didn't make me like the song any more. It was all over the place just like her vocals.

  • SaltineCrackers

    Can someone give me Blue Ivy's timestamp? I can still through this whole thing?

    Thank you in advance

  • Jay

    Right!! I like the video but dont really care for the song at all.

  • Ni Ni

    Carrington, i thought you was a member of the hive. She sanging her heart out for that oscar chile.

  • Ni Ni

    It's at the beginning. I only saw her for a split second, didnt even see her face.

  • Alextra Ballard

    around 1:12/1:13

  • xxxgracious

    ???? one potpourri rose

  • Julia Lyons

    We don't have to celebrate Beyonce just because she's Black. She's not everyone's cup of tea.

  • Angelique Johnson

    LOL
    I just fast foward until i saw her.
    Then i stopped watching.

  • Lainy Damone

    they show her face when she sits next to her mom

  • SaltineCrackers

    LOLOLOL!!!! I'm glad someone else remembers potpourri.

  • Lainy Damone

    i loved the colors the song was ok but I was having a problem with Beys face something looks off. It looks a little altered. Hoping that is not the case because we are not supposed to crack

  • Ni Ni

    Well, i missed it... too much going on.

  • SaltineCrackers

    LOL

  • Desi

    Yeah, it is. The comment goes to her mother too.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    She definitely looks waterlogged. Maybe she's taking hormones for premenopause symptoms.

  • SaltineCrackers

    Lord what did they put on top of the baby's head??

    Thank you kindly

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    I'm sure I'll here this sh!t on repeat from the hive members at the crib. Not a fan, but I'll suffer through the vid just to watch thick Beyonce. Lawd have mercy, them thighs!!!!!

  • SaltineCrackers

    The only Spirit I picked up from the video was the spirit of confusion. I don't have time for that sh*t.

  • missmiami305

    Auntie said Blue has on a red lace front like her mama?????.

  • MsVAllDay

    I was good with the video overall. One thing I can give Bey is that she always shows women of color and all different shades in her videos. The African inspired dance moves and scenes were great!

    My only complaint is why did BlC have to put on a wig?? Like what purpose did that serve and what message does that send? IMO that was totally unnecessary. I would have loved it with her in her natural hair just as much b/c she's beautiful.

  • SaltineCrackers

    Lol it's just too much

  • Candie P

    I must applaud your avid dedication on hating on every and anything Beyonce says or do. It really takes a lot of time and commitment to devote your life into spewing Hate on one person. I hope you're getting something tangible out of it like good health and wealth because this is one helluva persistence and tenacity you're displaying towards hating Beyonce. LOL

  • Alextra Ballard

    Lmaooo...hush!! let Blue Ivy be great in her “Cameo” with her Ariel wig

  • Desi

    I'm going back & forth wit somebody about the wig. It just was completely unnecessary.

  • Renee26

    Ummm I think that's both of their natural hair...

  • Renee26

    So shady... Looks like their hair to me

  • Renee26

    ?

  • Renee26

    LMAO he done renamed her

  • T Willis

    ????

  • T Willis

    ? you know damn well.... ???

  • Renee26

    Ummm they absolutely wear hair extensions in Africa... That's where our love of changing hairstyles came from. Admiring all of the different braided, yarned and molded styles of our African sistas... nobody can braid weave tighter than those African sistas

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld
  • Ni Ni

    "spirit of confusion"
    ____________
    Lol ?

  • T Willis

    Blue always has extensions? I did not know lol... but this reminds me of when Blue was a toddler and Beyonce had her hair looking a hot mess 24/7 ? and everyone swore that because Blues hair wasn’t getting combed lol that she was going to have better, healthier, and longer hair than every other black girl born before her... and to see years later that she’s not only putting extensions but wigs on her daughter is too damn funny ?

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld
  • IAmLawlessBrooks

    The video was really nice

  • T Willis

    I don’t need to listen or watch it, I have a pretty good idea of what it probably sounds and looks like lol. Every time Beyonce tries to be “serious” or “mature” she always creates the most bland and basic artistry. It’s obvious she doesn’t know who she is... artistically.

  • https://nylapoprush.com/twitch twitch.tv/NylaPop

    lmaoo whaddido?

  • MsVAllDay

    Like what did that add to the video? If anything it was more of a distraction and disappointment for me.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Right! They could've just braided/ cornrows hey natural hair with some beads or lil sea shells clipped throughout..

  • MsVAllDay

    Right!!! Especially if you are trying to represent African culture which I totally appreciated the representation in the video.

  • Not Today

    No

  • Gloria

    So Blu Ivy is a natural red head? Dyeing a 7 year old's hair just doesn't seem right either.

  • EasyBreezy

    Which is a compliment to the quality of the wig units.....

  • Karen Brady

    "as the wind blows through the curly red-haired wig that matches her mom's lacefront wig" Teee heee. Thanks for stating the obvious Sandra.

  • Renee Raquel

    and i hope u get paid for calling her out for her dislike for beyonce. its not your job to police who liked and dislikes her. .are u on her payroll or something? ijs

  • Michelle

    Song sucks but that little Blu Ivy is so adorable. Beyonce is a beautiful woman.

  • SpillyNillie

    BIC is a perfect mixture of her mother and father. I don't really like the song...

  • Karen Brady

    *chuckles*

  • Renee Raquel

    showing your bare arse to the world and singing about a man ejaculating on u is far from classy. ijs..and no one is jealous of a industry puppet.

  • Karen Brady

    Yes she is with an emphasis on Jay I think.

  • Karen Brady

    I'm not into celeb kids cuz I don't know them but I've always dug cutie Blue Ivy. Now on that note, Ms. Ivy, Annie's gonna need her little wig back when you finished. Wish they had braided her hair and adorned it.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Whew chile in 15 years the blogs will have a field day with blue and her jayz face. This is boring, the song the video her desperate attempt to make blue happen, the outfits all of it. This wig is however laid af.

  • Angela Marsh

    Its called entertainment, I have seen far worse. We are all adults, those of us that are in a relationship can clearly relate to what she is talking about. There is too much greatness about this woman, to point to one or two things that you don't like. That's the difference between negative and positive people. Positive people tend to focus on what's good. Negative people have a tendency to criticize. Lovely Day....

  • Karen Brady

    Right. I dragged the button to Blue's part. That's all I needed.

  • Karen Brady

    lol

  • Karen Brady

    THIS

  • leapyearpisces

    I agree! I have always rode for blue. She is such a non-cookie cutter beauty! It's obvious that B is training / prepping her to take over her reign and I think that's cool, because a lot of these stars are so narcissistic that they have to be the "shining star" in the family, but it is clear that B is training her to be a bigger star than she, and I am not a fan of Beyoncé OR Jay-Z, but this is how legacies are built.
    PS: I've always said that Jasmine Guy is really Blue's mom, because that is who she looks like to me especially if you see pictures of Jasmine when she was young.

  • Renee Raquel

    Im very positive that shes not classy. i can focus on her postivity when she doesnt show her bare arse to the world and act like shes above everyone else. and im sure hanging out with satanist Marina bromovitch and her husband reppin Aliester Crowley is postive too.. yeah right.

  • Karen Brady

    EXACTLY!!!

  • what?why

    Blue is gorgeous but I wish they left her hair natural. She is a beautiful child. Surprisingly, I liked the song and the video.

  • what?why

    No braids, just naturally blowing in the wind.

  • what?why

    … was classy, not in the past few years tho. Rather raunchy if the truth is told.

  • Kanyade

    She'll probably sing the song at next year's Oscars. I'm sure there will be a performance by her or a medley performance from the cast.

  • Angela Marsh

    We all go through changes in life, she is clearly growing in front of the world. Anyone who lives life, goes through changes. She just happens to be sexy and is in touch with HERSELF, ITS OK to express that, I can relate and I'm here for it. Now that trashy Cardi-B, has no class. But of course, Beyonce is the focus..OK.

  • Depths Of My Soul!

    ? Sure it is.

    Did you say Gray Sapphire? Chile... the Rose Garden is on straight fire today! LOL! https://media3.giphy.com/media/Qf6vXMyNL04jH1QUco/giphy.gif

  • TheWildChild

    Damn ? I thought it was just my ears ? this song or maybe her voice was so irritating. I know she'll never be a Stephanie Mills-Home-walk-in-the-park type vocals, but there was something totally off about this song. Blu is cute and captivating to the lenses.

  • EasyBreezy
  • Pamela

    Sad to say, but weaves, lacefronts, wigs are All over most African countries, especially metropolis areas. It's heartbreaking to see.

  • EasyBreezy
  • Minx Mosaic

    Love it! Everything about the vid was absolutely great. She nailed it once again.

  • EasyBreezy

    We agree, but still want to have a laugh or two or three at her expense. Leave us be, please!

  • Marlika

    Let him tell it he done seen her originally birth and birth certificate and this is the correct spelling her name.??

  • Karen Brady

    I just HOLLERED.

  • Karen Brady

    Ivory as in the soap? Just a wee bit confused...

  • Karen Brady

    I beg your pardon. It says Ivory not Ivy! LOL

  • Pamela

    ??

  • Karen Brady

    Well he can do that cuz he knows her I'm sure.

  • Desi

    True. But braids, a yarned or a molded style would've been more age appropriate for a seven year old.

  • Karen Brady

    :-) :-) :-)

  • Karen Brady

    Lol.. Thank you :-)

  • Pamela

    You truly are killing it????

  • Lady_Elle

    I LOVE this video!

  • Desi

    I'm sure it is. But the video was portrayed in the Motherland not in the civilization/metropolis areas. I get what she's trying to do, but some details should be thought through. People are going to notice.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Pink peony is cute but if her mama wants to make her someone else than beyZ child she needs to stop propping her up like an ornament and get her enrolled in whatever classes suit her needs.

  • Cali

    Of course it is, you know how many black people don’t understand their hair can grow and have had a bald of a life? The comments will let you know who they are????

  • DroneRivers

    It's no Circle of Life, but it's not bad. I like the video though

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Its them uneccesary ooohhhhs and ahhhhs and elongating words for no reasons like chill sasha ????

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Girl bye! Jazzy didnt eveb comment on the last three or so posts about pony stfu

  • Fated4greatness

    Blue Ivy??????

  • MsSapphire9800

    Yes...every picture she has extension to the braids or ponytails. Your hair would have to be down to your feet in order for it to be to your but in braids.

  • Let them eat cake

    no shit sherlock. Use your brain cells and learn how to critically think sweetie. its the unnecessary hate people give her and going in on her looks and hair etc. im not a huge fan of her either, but the constant dragging that people give this woman is sad and a form of self hate. I said what i said.

  • Let them eat cake

    so true

  • jujumanji

    Why does this feel so unnecessary to me?

  • Kayke

    Love the video.... All that melanin is marvelous! Great job at making the Grand Canyon look African-esque

  • SMDH x2

    The scenery and colors of the video was beautiful but the song didn't do it for me. I like how she tried to capture an African Theme with the visuals and dance moves. I feel the music was too slow for the choreography, maybe a more uptempo beat. Overall nice video

  • Kimberly King

    The song is terrible. But the fashions and scenery ... I'm here for it ! Baddie Bey & BIC both looked beautiful in this video.
    I can understand why she threw a wig on BIC's head. Those white hairstylists in the union do not know how to take care of black NATURAL hair. BIC has long, beautiful natural hair. Glad Baddie Bey didn't listen to the idiots who told her to put a relaxer on her hair. Leave that creamy cancer crack ALONE.

  • starbright9449

    I like to look at Beyonce, she's gotten really thick. I'm not purchasing anything tho. That's all I got.

  • sandi

    Song is for movie. It is made by the visuals. I can see where it's doesn't translate outside of watching the video.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    GOODBYE!

  • Look@m3

    SHe is adorbs!

  • starbright9449

    Blue didn't need a wig, only thing its teaching her is that her natural hair isn't good enough.

  • Look@m3

    Me too. Im so not into celeb kids but I love Blue Ivy.I don't know if its just because she looks like a little girl is supposed to look. I just like her! I low key wish they had let her wear her natural hair too...but then again I remember that one time B did and everybody was talking about her like a dog so she cant win or lose.

  • Myopinion

    This is wonderful! I am so glad that my hate, animosity or disdain for a person doesn't run so deep that I have to point out every flaw that "I THINK" they have. I thank God that I can dislike someone's artistry without being shady or petty towards them.

  • starbright9449

    She could've had Blue Blue's hair styled before they got to the set and tell those white stylists to leave her hair alone. I heard its hard for black stylist to get in.

  • Kimberly King

    Agreed. And yes it's very hard for black stylists to get in the Union.

  • rockstar2142

    Blue is beautiful jay z face or not.

  • Applebootay

    Its not that deep, it was just for a video...she mostly wears her natural hair?

  • YellowSauce

    why wouldn't she want to be her mom ...shiiii I wanna be her mom hahahahah !!!!

  • Candie P

    LOL, how are you doing Beloved. I have less than 60 comments on this website, so clearly If I am getting paid to police anyone's freedom of speech, i'm doing a heck of a bad job at it (LOL). I'm just making a innocent observation. Remember all we see from these celebrities are just their surface, so all the unnecessary hate is so uncalled for.
    However, being that you have more than double the comment entries than I have on this website, I can't help but wonder if you are even employed at all?? Do you even get a W2 or 1099?? Good day :)

  • JazzyBossyJen

    Lol...And I observe her clueless fanatics that dedicate their vapid lives to attacking and defending one, who wouldn’t piss on them if on fire..So ya can’t expect less, it contributes to the dislike for her and the music...Now to “Hate” anyone..Nah but the song indeed sucks to others as well, just an opinion nothin’ more or less but hey this is a Bey post, so sane people stay having to remind the delusional to stay on topic and stop wishing everyone gave at least one f*** about how ya’ll overzealous arses really feel..?Smhlol?

  • yvette46

    Beautiful video very colorful and a lots of black employment..

  • Rita

    I said the Samething.! Why put that sh!t on her head? Why not wear plaits, braids, cornrows Or even afro? Bey is dumb to me. She wore braids, why not do the same for Blue. Seems more authentic since..it's base around Africa.

  • Rita

    LOLOL! Too cute! What movie or show did that come?

    Thats because the Sasha Fierce/Bootylicious/FreekEmDress/WorkthemiddleTilitHurtAlittle persona IS who Beyonce is artistically. Pop. Lock. And drop it. Anything else seems forced, because it is.
